Wednesday, November 17, 2010 could I NOT know about this?

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, there really is a World Quidditch Cup and it just happened!!! Last weekend!!

How could I not know about this?

I mean, I once refereed a Quidditch game. We bought the brooms at the dollar store, used a big ball for the quaffle and flat-ish balls for the bludgers. And for the Golden Snitch, we had a yellow balloon that we released when one of our prefects yelled, "GOLDEN SNITCH!" and ran through the field.

Okay, so it was at Cali's eight birthday...and it was nowhere near as rough as some of the video footage I've seen. But the truth is that even though these college boys didn't inform me of their Quidditch Cup, I am still totally jazzed.

I mean, I live in a world where people play Quidditch.

Earth just became a tad cooler.

I want to be a Seeker so bad, I can't even tell you.

Um, I think you've always lived in a world that plays Quidditch. Now you've seen the evidence. :D

Wow. I didn't know this either. It's kind of cool to find out TODAY since I'm going to see the new movie tonight at 12:01!!

I love that you had a Quidditch game at your daughter's party!!!
I have a feeling there's many more Quidditch games being played that we don't know about!

I don't know. Quiddich just doesn't make sense to me without the flying brooms, since it's a game played entirely IN THE AIR! I've got to check out a game and see what it's all about.

OMG, how cool!

Christina Lee said...

Or a bit nerdier--hahaha!! This is GREAT!

Laura Pauling said...

That is pretty cool. I just wish we could really fly on brooms.

I'd heard of people playing Quidditch, but I'd not seen it played, other than in the Harry Potter movies.
